A stray dog wanders the busy streets, longing for something. Kind-hearted people notice its suffering and call for help. The rescuers are shocked by its decaying face and exposed teeth. In Alabama, a good-hearted person calls an animal welfare organization. The dog cautiously approaches the rescuers, showing signs of previous training. They name it Phoenix and take it for treatment.
The cause of its deteriorating skin remains uncertain. A crowdfunding campaign raises enough money for its treatment. Despite its appearance, people online show love and support. Phoenix is now recovering at the veterinary clinic. The volunteers will consider adoption once it's fully healed. We should respond with kindness and gratitude in a sometimes imperfect world.
